Organized Desktops Roundup

Industrial file bins organize papers.  Mismatched cups keep pencils and paintbrushes at bay.

Small vintage suitcases store art supplies.  An antique Canada Dry crate keeps paper neat.  Adorable vintage tins hide clutter out-of-sight.  

Color-coordinated bins, boxes, and trays keep everything about this modern secretary neat and tidy.  

Storage slots on the wall leave lots of open space on the desktop.  

Numbered magazine files store not only glossy-paged goodness, but also notebooks and paper.

This shabby chic desktop organizer keeps the workspace as tidy as it is lovely.

A simple file organizer, built-in sorting slots, and a do-it-yourself rotating tins for writing utensils organize this small space deskspace. 

Stay tuned for my desktop organization project!



I like the idea how to organize those things. I really need something like this.
Unfortunately, the dorm room/apartment in my country is different. Most dorm rooms are very boring,the owner of the house is not allowing the students to decorated/change the color of the wall,or bring lot of stuffs.
anyway, thank you for the idea! I love this blog! :D

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
